I read Matt Taibbi's article in Rolling Stone about the Healthcare debacle now working it's way through Congress. Very depressing indeed. You can read part of it online. Search the internets to see if any one has posted the whole thing if you want to read it all. And you should. If for no other reason than to re-inforce your belief that Congress is there for no other purpose than to fuck us all over.
Meanwhile Driftglass posted a link to movie critic Roger Ebert with his thoughts about universal healthcare. It's worth a read.
